Tuesday night, Blink-182 drummer Travis Barker and rapper Kid Ink collaborated for a high-powered set at Hyde Bellagio in Las Vegas in celebration of the 15th anniversary of Barker’s clothing line, Famous Stars and Straps.
The world famous drummer was joined for the celebratory performance by up-and-coming rapper Kid Ink, who last month earned his first gold plaque from the Recording Industry Association of America for his smash hit single, “Show Me” featuring Chris Brown. Barker founded his punk/hip hop-influenced lifestyle brand Famous Stars and Straps in 1999, and February 2014’s MAGIC MARKET WEEK in Las Vegas marked 15 years of success for the clothing line.
Barker and Kid Ink were joined on the red carpet by fellow musicians Paul Wall and DJ Eric D-Lux, where they posed for photos in front of dozens of excited fans. In honor of Famous Stars and Straps’ milestone, the stars donned branded apparel, with Barker sporting a special anniversary T-shirt that read, “Est. 99 – XV Years.”
After walking the red carpet, the entourage made their way into the packed nightclub to join brand executives at a plush VIP booth overlooking the dance floor before the performance. The crowd went wild when the superstar ensemble took the stage and the emcee announced, “Las Vegas, we got Paul Wall in the building, we got Kid Ink in the building and we got Travis Barker in the building!”
With Barker on the drums and DJ Eric D-Lux manning the turntables, Kid Ink belted out hit songs including “Time Of Your Life,” “Main Chick” and “Show Me.” Paul Wall also joined the set for a live collaborative performance of his own new song “Gettin Tho’d” which features Kid Ink.
After rocking the nightclub with a dynamic set, Barker joined his Famous Stars and Straps brand partners at his VIP table to toast to 15 years of success. To mark the occasion, Hyde’s staff surprised the crew with bottles of champagne and an elaborately-decorated themed cake.
The group celebrated into the early morning hours while Hyde’s Tuesday night Lost Angels Industry Night kept the party going all night long.
